have hired their former pitching coach, john farrell, as manager. the ex toronto skipper replaces valentine, who like guillen, was fired after just one season. and speaking of bobby valentine, he went on nbc sports networks "costas tonight" taking blame for the red sox abysmal season but also pointed a finger at sox slugger david ortiz. this is the quote. david ortiz came back after spending six weeks on the disabled list and we thought it was going to be a week. he got two hits, drove in a couple runs and we're off to the races. then he realized this trade meant we're not going to run this race, and we're not even going to finish the race properly, and he decided not to play anymore. i think at that time it was all downhill from there. and don't you know it, the red sox are now working to sign ortiz to a two-year contract. red sox gm ben cherington rejected valentine's remarks, saying he has no concerns about big papi's commitment. it's a soap opera in boston. that's a look at sports this morning. >>> on to our talkback question. do candidates' comments on rape and abortion influ
